  1. my saga 90% TDIU 8 years 7 back surgeries, 20% degenerative disc, 10% Radiculopathy, 70% stress disorder, 30% bladder During one of my later surgeries on my spine the operation went completely sideways. They were installing a spinal stimulator and it didn’t go well. When I woke up I was paralyzed from the neck down and bleeding internally at the surgical site. I had to be rushed back and reopened to rectify the screw up. After I woke up the second time, I regained most of my movement back except for the use of my bladder. I’ve never urinated naturally since that day and man do I
  2. Yesterday was a great day. I have been working on these claims for awhile and this last year i really decided to do it right and spend the money and time necessary to win that last few claims i had been denied over the years. I was checking my status on va.gov and ebenefits and noticed while va.gov showed it as "gathering evidence" still ebenefits under pending disabilities when you click "check pending claim" it had been listed as "preparation for decision". As a sidenote i realized that ebenefits had alot more steps in it (gathering -> prep for decision-> pending decision approva
  3. I was awarded 100% PT for several issues about a year ago. My code sheet (from my FOIA request and confirmed verbally by my VSO, and then by a VA phone rep) indicates that everything rating is 'static' except for my back issue(40%) and radiculopothy for both legs (20% each). Those two items are listed with a re eval scheduled for about 8 mos from now. I am confused how I am P&T but still having to do a Re eval. To make things more confusing I am 100% static for mental health stuff. Even if the reduced my back I would still be 100% for MH stuff alone. Any thoughts?
  4. OK guys. i have a lot of news to update you all on but i haven't gotten my letters yet so i am waiting on those before i post updates. but looking like i have won to very large claims in my favor that should push me over to 100% schedular. all of my claims are disabilities that obviously will never get better and will only degrade for the rest of my life(osa,tbi,tinnitus,back leg feet issues hearing loss,gerd) so with all that being said i am looking into what my next steps are. i know i am going to be fighting some effective dates on some of my claims and that will be a seperate post. b
  5. I had a fall about a month ago which resulted in an ambulance ride to the ER. The bills are starting to come in, one I already paid. I have no other insurance but was reading that the VA should pay for the associated medical bills. Can anyone help me out here with some information? I haven't had a trip to the ER for decades and have not a clue how the process is supposed to work for 100% vets. Thanjk you very much!
  6. Well folks, I finally crossed the goal line that I have been moving the ball toward since I started this adventure in 2010. A few days ago, I saw all kinds of crazy activity on eBenefits and VA.gov as I went to check on my slow shuffle in the BVA line. I had already had my hearing and had several claims granted, and was waiting for the VA to move forward on the granted conditions, or see if they were were going to handle the remaining two remanded conditions that didn't amount to much anyway. I was sitting back with something like 33,000 claims still ahead of me in the slow march, so I
  7. I was recently granted IU back in September 2019. I was trying to see if I was also P&T because of my award letter referenced CHAMPVA & Chapter 35 -- but it did not say that I was granted it (see info enclosed below). My award letter also did not mention a future C&P exam either. On eBenefits there is no Commissary Letter or Chapter 35 Letter under Letter Generator. I recently went to a local military base to get my Tan ID card in which the Expiration Date shows "INDEF" and the STATUS/Grade box reflects "DAVPRM". I would like to get y'alls thoughts about this. Thanks!
  8. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/waV5t0HPtbM Today we are joined by Thomas Wendel, DAV National area supervisor for West Cost Region. Thomas E. Wendel served in the U. S. Marine Corps from 1983 until 1997. Since 1999, Tom has worked assisting veterans in processing various entitlement claims on the local, state and federal levels; first in Clare County as a county service officer and then when he came to work for the Disabled American Veterans in 2000. In 2008 he was promoted to the position of supervisor of the DAV Service Office in Detroit and later
  9. Yesterday when reviewing my medical records I noticed an examiner did a C and P/DBQ addendum. Im currently 70 percent and submitted for an increase(12 months ago) and also filed for IU(2 months ago). I don't know what this nexus means and would like to know if the exam was for the IU or increase claim. This examiner did a table top review as I wasn't present for it. See below: Please utilize this form when responding to VBA requests for either addendums or clarifications of prior VHA examination reports. This Veteran was seen for a C&P examination in December, 2017. At that
  10. Hey all just want to share what I think of is good news, even though I still have to sit and wait. On 8//16/2018 I had a C&P review for my PTSD which was 70% with 10% Tinnitus rating. I was initially rated in 2013 and I had made no requests for adjustments. VA just mandated this C&P. Today, 8/24/2018 ebenefits was up and down all day so I could not really read anything on my statuses until 6 pm PST. I went in and I am, according to ebenefits, at 100% and in the letters I see my rating is P&T. I am over the moon. This RO must be the rocket docket or the QTC doc r
  11. It's official! After 3 years 8 months of fighting the VA. Now at 100% TDIU P&T. Chapter 35 Bennefits will be a nice addition. I look forward to hearing your success stories too fellow Vets.
  12. I am in the midst of a form 9 appeal, waiting on the VARO to review and certify the appeal. If the claim is granted I will hit 100% disability. If Permanent and Total is not granted by the VARO or BVA, but the claim is otherwise approved, is applying for P&T a new claim or an appeal? My disability goes back 20 years and my claim is from February 2012, so I would obviously be looking to P&T status dated to the date of claim.
  13. Hi guys, as the title implies, i have finally received the news that i am 100% P&T no future exams scheduled. I did this without any VSO's or any help other than that of my family writing "buddy statements". I am still involved with my treatment plan, though the depression makes it hard to even do that but i just wanted to say thanks to the people on this forum for all of the help, encouragement, and information. Previously i was at 80% for: left carpal tunnel- 10% Asthma 60% Allergic Rhinitis 10% Cystic Acne (due to jet fumes) 30% My last claim
  14. God is Great! I asked for P%T and well I just went on Ebenefits and I got it!!! I applied for P&T after they awarded me 100% schedular in October. Last month I applied for P&T because I felt that I should have no future exams and that my PTSD should be considered static. I filed the 526EZ in November and asked for P&T shortly after they bumped me to 100 % percent schedular (October) and they awarded it to me. Thank God I do not have to worry about my childrens health insurance and college now. I can only say that it does not hurt to ask. I was prepared for them to say no but I so
  15. He opinioned that my residuals of my TBI effect my ability to work and said this (1) Trauma effects on Veteran's Memory seem to create one of his most significant impairments. Work on aircraft, where the lives of pilots & passengers are at risk, and much of the tasks are quite technical, seems particularly inappropriate for an individual with his apparent level of cognitive impairment. (2) In most employments, relationships & cooperation with coworkers & customers are important. The Veteran's emotional impairments would seem to be a liabi
  16. Well for those of you that have followed my story, you know that I filed for P&T recently. I knew that filing for this could subject me to reduction. The current status of my claim on ebenefits is now: 11/09/2016 Compensation Pending Decision Approval Attention: Status Has ChangedStatus Has Changed Could this be a sign that they approved my P&T request? I hope that it is because I really need it. I should have an answer or rather completion no later than December 1st according to ebennies. Please wish me luck! Will
  17. I just got approved for PTSD as schedular 100% and have had it at 70% since 2012. Since they have increased me to 100% for the PTSD dated back to 2014 when I filed for TDIU, it now shows that my service connected PTSD is effective from 2014 although I have been getting paid for it since 2007. I have not improved and only now have gotten the 100 % that I should have been at from the beginning. They also have approved me for SMC S1 since 2014 as well. My question is. how do I apply for P&T? My PTSD is not going to get any better as it has been increased steadily over time from 30% to now 10
  18. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/9paX1-FyCaI Today we’re talking about SERVICE CONNECTION. When we talk about service-connecting a medical condition, disease, injury or illness to military service, we are talking about proving the relationship between the two. 1) Direct Service Connection 2) Service Connection by Aggravation 3) Presumptive Service Connection 4) Secondary Service Connection 5) Service Connection due to Injury Caused by Treatment in the VA Healthcare System 6) Special Service Connection Rules for Post-Traumati
  19. Hello to my fellow Brothers and Sisters this is my first post, I've been a long time lurker. I am a recently discharged OEF Vet. I joined the National Guard prior to my ETS. I really only joined for the healthcare to help out my family members. I knew my mind and body was breaking down too much to carry on doing active duty Infantry and I wasn't allowed to re-class. The Guard offered me one so I decided to re-class in the Guard to a HR MOS. I didn't receive a bonus and haven't gone to my AIT for the re-class yet. I've only participated in one Drill weekend. I recently received my award letter
  20. Hello, I'm a new member but have been a frequent visitor to all of the great info on here. I have been curious mainly due to haring a dozen different answers to this question. My question is this, If a veteran who is 80% scheduler with 100% IU P&T is awarded 100% scheduler would the IU then fall away? Would the veteran just be 100%? I have a friend who is in this situation currently and he is bored out of his mind and wanted to at least try to work or go to school. He understands that there is already a system to do so should he choose to but has heard a lot of horror stories of the VA red
  21. Please, welcome new VET2VET podcast episode: https://youtu.be/sTH3p-WwXn0 The way VA defines The word "permanent" slightly differently. For that matter, the word total doesn't mean total when discussing a disability. These are just terms to VA. There really isn't a protected rating. Any rating can be modified by VA at any time, depending on the circumstances. How do you know if your benefit is P & T? What is IU? What is substantially gainful employment? Are there any other eligibility requirements? How is the way VA decides total disability different from other agen
  22. I'm 100% P & T with no future exams (lets hope not) and I've been doing a little research of my own of what other payable benefits I'm entitled to, besides the ones in my letter from the VA like clothing allowance (topical cream), SMC (K) and Education. This is what my ratings look like. Could someone give me any other possible suggestion? 60% Dermatitis with Lichen Planus and Erythema Dyschromicum Perstans 50%Obstructive Sleep Apnea 30% Adjustment Disorder w/Anxiety & Depression Mood 30% Migraine Headaches 10% Cervical Spine Strain 10% Right Ankle Degene
  23. Hello, I'll go through this in chronological order: On my initial determination letter for 100% rating (May 10, 2011) it says "An examination will be scheduled at a future date to evaluate the severity of your service connected "PTSD". Further in the letter it states, "The examiner indicated that you would benefit from counseling and other mental health service, therefore, there is evidence indicating a possibility for improvement" The assigned evaluation is not considered permanent and is subject to a future review examination". So, I submitted another application for increase
  24. I have some questions if anyone has time to answer. The first of December, I had another C&P done. I went from 90% to 100%. My commissary letter: We are providing you with this letter so you may receive commissary store and exchange privileges from the Armed Forces. This is to certify (ME) is an honorably discharged veteran of the Army and is entitled to disability compensation at the 100 percent rate due to service-connected disability(ies). This total disability is considered permanent. You are not scheduled for future examinations. My benefit verification: Combined Evalu
  25. I already have a combined 100% service connected for several health issues. When applying for permanent rating should I link it to specific diagnosis on the statement in support of claim. Or should i just make a basic statement like " I am writing to request a permanent rating" and let them decide which diagnosis I am referring to. I just dont want to write too little or too much. Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
